Not to be a stickler, but the ALES League rules state that the landing has to be 5-15 meters. 5 meters is 16.4 feet. So you'll need to stretch those tapes to be legal!

Have fun, it is a great contest format.

Thanks, Curtis.

The tapes are, in fact, 5 meters. Just a typo out of habit.

Hey, take a trip and join us.

That's too bad.. because I'm pretty sure there won't be snow on the ground yet.

Personally, I'm always up in the air until the last week or so... until I know my work schedule.

One day contests that are close, are usually okay for me.
I will try hard to make it.

Too bad.
It's a real pain to get on and off that island for a day.

I will remember that come next year's Polecat.

P.S. Texas is not the biggest state in the Union. Just sayin'.

37 degrees fahrenheit here this morning.

I might actually have to put on a pair of sweatpants over my shorts.
Any Southerners that are coming here for the contest, better bring your hand warmers.

Texans should bring their 10 gallon hat warmers.

Less than two weeks. Special note to Kenny, Lincoln, Dick, Randy, and other close by flyers - this will be a fun filled day and the foliage is already getting beautiful.

7 hours is close by?? Oh.

If the weather looks ok, I'll probably be there. Someone needs to be there to show you how to surf.
